Book Bucket list: The Giver by Lois Lowry

There are books in your life that you come across and you know you have to read them. They can be old, they can be new but before your time runs out you have to find time to read them. Welcome to my Book Bucket List everyone!


This book has been getting a lot new buzz because it's movie but before I heard of this movie, I wanted to read this book. I've actually been told by friends who love this book to stay away from the movie because it ruins the book. That's probably a bit unbelievable since it a lot of people have been reaching for it since it's movie release, but oh well. You'll just have to take my word for it.

Why is it on my Book Bucket List:
From what I understand that this is the grandfather of all dystopian novels. Even in it's premise it reminds me a lot of Lauren Oliver's Delirium, which I loved so why not give this classic a chance?

Why haven't I read it yet:
It wasn't until fairly recently that I've gotten into the dystopian scene. I'd say that I'd gotten into it..at most three-four years ago. Before that I didn't want to go near books where the entire world was crappy and everything that seemed perfect wasn't. Basically meaning that the character's lives are all one big lie and that's extremely depression to me. But I've grown up a bit and I'm starting to branch out. So hopefully, I'll find some time to read this one. If I do, I'll probably wait until the buzz around it dies a bit more. Only because when I'm reading a book I hate it when people start talking to me all about because there is a high chance of it being spoiled.

Did you guys read the book and see the movie? If so, do you also believe that it ruined it? Let me know.
